Oh My Gosh! Who HASN'T heard that it's never good to go grocery shopping when you're hungry right? Well...I proved that point today. After my work out and a quick shower I had to run out of the house to take Grant to school and then to the grocery store. There was no time to eat. I knew I was messing up because I was already hungry but I kept telling myself I'll just shop super-quick and then come home and eat a healthy lunch. Well by the time I got back in the car to head home, it was already 2 pm (2 hours later) and I was S-T-A-R-V-I-N-G. So I grabbed a banana and some Rice Works chips out of my grocery bag and ran thru Sonic for a Diet Sprite. Ate that on the way home. Found 2 old hard-as-a-rock Bit-O-Honey's and gnawed on them too. Got home, unloaded the groceries, all of which looked DELICOUS and decided to "treat myself" (for what, I have no idea) to a small bowl of Banana Nut Cheerios. (I LOVE cereal!) Next I decided to pull all the grapes off of the vine and put them in a nice big bowl and wash them so that the kids will snack on them. If I leave them in the bag on the vine, they'll just get old and moldy in the fridge. Well, you KNOW I had to sample one and of course...they were the BEST grapes ever so I sat there and ate probably 15 of them. Next I put away the Sea Salt Almonds. "oh, I should probably take the seal off these so when Matt opens them up to get some, he won't have to bother with it" I thought. Ya...so down went about 8 almonds.
Now I feel like a stuffed pig! And...it's almost time to start cooking dinner! Eeeeek!
In other news: We are on Day 4 of this round of P90X and I have never seen Matt so focused! He is SERIOUS about it this time. Me on the other hand..I'm trying to have a sense of balance. Between my classes at the gym, the fitness classes I am teaching at my crib on Mon & Weds AND the "X" I'm afraid I'm overtraining...certain muscle groups anyway. I do biceps, legs and abs practically EVERY day. Lately my mid-back has been sore ALL the time. Like I need a good stretch but I don't know of anything that really stretches that area very well. It's the area just below my bra strap--those muscles on either side of my spine.
Tuesday I taught my first portion of a fitness class at the gym! I did abs and it went very well. Thankfully Shelly didn't tell me I was going to do it for sure until just a couple of minutes before it was time...so I didn't have a chance to get too nervous. Just as I had prayed, God helped me remember the routine and I didn't even need my note card! Hooray! Putting on a microphone and hearing myself over the speakers was weird, but not as bad as I expected. The only feedback I got other than "good job" and "you did great" was that I needed to talk a little more. And I totally agreed. As soon as I got them started on a set...it was dead silent until I started counting down. I need to encourage them while they're working (Keep Going! You can do it! We're halfway done! and so on..) Tomorrow I will be teaching biceps. I am entirely using the P90X Back & Biceps routine minus the back exercises. At least I know it works and I pretty much know it by heart so no worries about forgetting what's next. I'm excited about this new "adventure" I've begun. Between this and beachbody coaching, I think I am fulfilling my dreams!
Well..this was a long post. If you made it this far, you are a great friend! Thanks!
